Svabhanu to S. 1B46 for 21 years.

While Harihara II was reigning at Vijayanagara, Praudha
Devaraya Vodaya was governing the province of Udayagiri.
Cennareddi, Annareddi, and Mallareddi, the lords of Addanki in
the east, having entered the district of Pulugulanadu with his
array, caused much disturbance, as a consequence of which
several villages such as Siiigamaneyadipattanam, Battaluru,
Peda-Bukkapattanam,aiid Cina-Bukkapattanam were destroyed.

Devaraya Vodaya marched from Vijayanagara at the Siead
of an army, and captured the fort of Udayagiri. He despatched
a portion of an army to Candragiri, and Cennareddi and others
of Addanki were obliged to evacuate the district and retreat to
the east. The people who left their homes owing to the
violence caused by the invaders then returned, and began to
restore the villages that had been destroyed.

a visit to Vijayanagara. Taking advantage of his absence at
Udayagiri, Cennareddi, Annareddi and Mallareddi sons of
Perumallareddi, an younger brother of Vemareddi, the lord of
Addankijf laid siege to the fort of Eacavidu and captured it.
